I'd rather have the '65 Riviera or that '66(?) Chevy pickup that are in the background of the pics. Dear Lord, please don't tell me he tried to re-engineer, or out mind-think Detroit/Flint on these classics too!
If this continues, welders and plasma cutters will be licensed like machine guns!

In one word: sad

I guess it's better to see someone do things like this rather than hauling it off for scrap or just letting it rust away to nothing, but wow...

Saw that yellow one before. WOW
I guess the Willys might make a decent old timey monster truck. If it had a HUGE tire. A 50 plus inch tire and the little ones would sure like it. Kinda

If you're just starting off and trying to make a living just make sure you know what you are doing before trying to sell a product. I hear where you are coming from but who does this guy think he is thinking someone would pay $750 for something that's not even bent on a break, but looks to be hammered over the edge of some angle iron?

I really love this line too:

3.With or without diamond plate topper or brushed aluminum
Optional Windshield Delete Kit Included If you Want the Topper
( must remove windshield for diamond plate or brushed aluminum top)


What the F is he saying? You say optional, but then in quotes it says it must be removed?

I see your bid on there, but it sure didn't take long to get outbid! I thought I might throw one on there for s&g's, but it just might already be getting too rich for my blood!

That's a great example of someone who states how much he paid for the rig and probably doesn't understand that he's not going to get back half of what he spent.

Perhaps it's a great Jeep, but that doesn't mean you'll find someone who'll give you $50,000 for it.

Oh man, I feel sorry for that guy if he paid that much for all that stuff. He could have had a nice hotrod for that much.

He'll be lucky if he gets 15 grand for it. If he wants to maximize his return, he should part it out--he might get half of what he put in.

I don't know about y'll but I'm not sure I'd broadcast to everyone one on the Internet how much I paid for all that stuff or it's worth. Your kinda inviting people to rob ya! There's always someone who likes your stuff more than you.
